San Francisco 2012 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Rrazz Room, San Francisco, CA; January 27, 2012 (third night). Excellent soundboard.
Between January 25 and 29, 2012, Jefferson Starship did a residency at San Francisco’s Rrazz Room, playing six shows over five nights. While Jefferson Starship might have been an iconic band from the ’70s, many fans in the ’80s no doubt had to stomach We Built This City and probably wished the song had been consigned to a black hole.
So far, five of the six shows at the Rrazz Room have been shared on the net and, looking at the tracklist, We Built This City is nowhere to be found. As Jim Harrington of mercurynews.com wrote of the January 25 gig:
Starship probably hasn’t been a legitimate arena-headliner since the late-‘80s. Yet, the group – which consists of vocalist-guitarists Paul Kantner and David Freiberg, vocalist Cathy Richardson, lead guitarist Slick Aguilar, drummer Donny Baldwin and keyboardist-bassist Chris Smith – is currently playing like its ready for Madison Square Garden…
Nostalgia ruled throughout the evening, especially whenever Starship flew into a tune from the ‘60s. A few of the songs felt particularly dated – such as “Wooden Ships,” the Crosby, Stills and Nash song that Kantner helped compose – but not necessarily in a bad way. Richardson, part of the Starship crew since 2008, was phenomenal throughout the show. She lived up to our treasured memories of Grace Slick on the classic Airplane cut “White Rabbit,” which pulsed with drama, and on the sophisticated Starship smash “Miracles.” Aguilar was just as good, trading off between convincingly psychedelic riffs and arena-rock-style solos.
Thanks to Mission Control for the recording and to Cicada for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den. Thanks also to davies51 for the original artwork (hope you are OK with the modifications).
